Danville Kids Heading to the White House

Danville, VA - Some kids in Danville are taking a very special trip.

Thirty kids and five adults from the Boys and Girls Club have been invited by First Lady Michelle Obama to tour the White House Garden. They will go to DC next Tuesday.

This summer, for the first time, kids from the Boys and Girls Club worked to create a garden project at Gibson Middle School. They grew several kinds of vegetables, which they donated to the needy.

"I hope they will learn patience, the responsibility that they need to be citizens. These are things that we know they are doing at the White House and we hope that they take from the White House trip," said Brian Henderson, the Boys and Girls Club team director.
